The Opposite Of Ordinary by Jessica Sorensen *REVIEW*

The Opposite of Ordinary


One day ago my life was pretty perfect. But a lot can change in a day.
In one day, I went from being Ashlynn Wynterland, one of the most popular girls in school to being the girl who spends lunchtime hiding out in Mr. Chester’s classroom and watching Maxon Harter and his science obsessed friends mess around with experiments. All because Queeny Harlington thinks I made out with her crush.
Queeny Harlington is the queen of Fareland high. And up until a day ago, she was my best friend. Now she’s my worst enemy who’s threatening to tell the entire school all of my secrets.
Being the friendless, social outcast has its downsides. So, when Maxon Harter invites me to hang out with him and his mad scientist friends, I accept his offer, even though they all seem to despise me. Which is fine. Sort of…
The truth is I’ve always thought Maxon was cute in a weirdly unordinary way. And the more I get to know him, the more I find myself crushing on him badly. Which makes me wonder if I’ve always been a weirdly unordinary kind of girl, but was too afraid to admit it.
But when Queeny decides to tell everyone my darkest secret of all, I doubt Maxon and my new friends will accept me anymore. I need to stop her, and the only way to do that may be to figure out who made up the rumor that I kissed her crush.
A YA Contemporary Romance.

The Opposite of Ordinary by Jessica Sorensen was such an enjoyable read. I was instantly pulled into the story and could not put it down once I started it. I'm always fascinated by Jessica's stories and this was no exception. 

The Opposite of Ordinary will push all your boundaries because it makes you feel like you're in high school again. It is so easy to relate to. But it is also such a sweet, heart-pounding, romantic, yet cute story that leaves you with a smile.

This book will forever stay with me. I loved it that much. 

Ashlynn is such a pleasant character. I felt so bad for her when the book began. I was so happy to watch her grow into the person she was meant to be and that through each page, she stood up for herself and those she began to care for. Then you meet Maxon. Oh be still my heart, he owned it. The boy is honest, caring, and shows Ashlynn that no matter what, she has someone on her side. I loved, loved, loved his character. His and Ashlynn's love blossoming will leave you with butterflies in your stomach. It's such a gem of a book.

I give The Opposite of Ordinary by Jessica Sorensen FIVE out of FIVE BREATH OF FRESH AIR STARS!
